Title: "Current assessment methods for the receptive language skills of autistic children and future directions"
Abstract: Early language and communication concerns are often the first types of developmental concerns listed by caregivers of autistic children. As a result, many studies have investigated the early language skills of young autistic children. However, often, the focus of these studies is on their expressive language skills. Fewer studies have focused on their receptive language skills and the best ways to assess these skills. In this presentation, we will examine current methods used to assess the receptive language skills of young autistic children, the results of these methods, and future directions for assessment methods.
